First of all, I wouldn't rely on Trulia for accurate listing info. Beside the search functionality on this site is TERRIBLE. Most of the listings you see listed "for sale" here are under contract, and have been for days or weeks.
The best source of info is going to be a Realtor who can give you access to the local MLS. I would be happy to assist you. Please contact me and we can discuss your search criteria.
The only way to get your FSBO home listed on Trulia is to have it listed on the MLS. Only agents have access, but you could also pay for what's called a flat fee listing service if you want to sell by owner (generally not a good idea).
We created UpNest (http://www.upnest.com) to help home sellers get the best value possible. All you have to do is submit a few details about your home, and we'll invite several top local agents to submit proposals to you.
Since agents are competing to earn your listing, they bring out their best commission rates and value added services, saving you a lot of money. There's no risk to try us at all, and it's completely free for you.
If your home is listed with a Realtor, you signed a listing agreement that spells out what the total commission is, and what the listing agent is going to "co-op" to a buyer's agent. Signing a listing contract is when you negotiate the commission, NOT when you get an offer. The listing agent has to advertise the co-op in the MLS, so agents know what they could get if they sell your home.
Keep in mind...there are agents out there who won't show your home if you're not offering at least 2.8%. Look at the Trelora listings. They let the seller decide how much a buyer's agent gets and often it is only $2500 vs. 2.8%. Those listings sit on the market a LOT longer than normal listings, and sometimes they never sell.
I'd be happy to assist you! FYI -- all foreclosures will be listed in the MLS with a Realtor. The ones you see listed on this site aren't necessarily for sale, and may not even be a real foreclosure.
I can do a quick search of all foreclosures in the area you're interested in. Keep in mind, the foreclosure market has dried up for the most part, although you can still find them occasionally.
FSBOs are sometimes listed in the MLS with a limited service agent, or you can find them on Zillow or even Craigslist. But be careful about working with FSBOs. They aren't necessarily well informed about their home's value (usually very unrealistic), and they don't know what contracts or disclosures are required. Most FSBOs are open to working with Buyer's who have a Realtor working for them as a Buyer's Agent.
I'd be happy to help you in your home search!

I suggest changing lenders the builder is correct. Yes a certificate of occupancy is required per guidelines however that is typically a form you complete at closing. The certificate has absolutely nothing to do with an appraisal seeing as the only reason they would need to know if its owner occupied or a rental is so they can list projected rental income for the home for the lender to use in qualifying you for the loan. Plus even if somehow I missed that update and it is now required they wouldn't not schedule and complete the appraisal the appraiser just wouldn't release the appraisal until they have that form. I would be more than happy to assist you with this if you are interested feel free to reach out to me.... more
I am not a realtor, so I can't speak to the actual price/value decrease nor should my answer below be taken as expert advice, but as a fellow homeowner and someone who currently has our house listed for sale, I can tell you that a "bedroom" without a closet and a window in it is not considered a legal conforming "bedroom". While most people would still consider and use it as a bedroom even without a closet, this space can not be legally called a bedroom on the assessment records. So, I would guess that it might decrease the value of the house a bit just because you include it in the listing as an actual bedroom, but I believe most people title such a space as a "flex" or "office" space. The good news is that it is still finished square footage and that is what most buyers would consider important. The bottom line is that it still has the potential to be a legal bedroom without requiring a lot of work since framing in a "small closet" would be no big deal. Hope this info helps you even just a little bit?... more
